4:30 am
grow our economy in fact, since 1990 california has cut its g h g emissions per capita by 25 percent and at the same time increased other energy by 37 percent how do we do those things because of leadership we have incredible leaders two of whom you'll hear from today so, now let me ask the mayor of san francisco ed lee to come to the stage. >> mayor ed lee is mayor of a global city he's a global mayor he's worked hard to make san francisco one of the most of the welcoming alternate cleanest energy city in the united states of america we're proud of his leadership and proud of our friendship with him ladies and gentlemen, the mayor
4:31 am
of the city and county of san francisco the honorable edwin lee. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, jim secretary and distinguished guests america's cup i'm 0 truly honored to be in the company of so many leaders around the world that share in the belief that action only climatic change is necessary and utter will this gathering that the first step towards the implementation of the historic all the time many of the nations ♪ room drafted in paris last year when i attended the gathering of mayors at the the have and have not's con on climatic change france eloquent expressed a true economic california approach
4:32 am
must respond to the cry of the earth and of the poor st. francis is the patriot saint we pride ourselves on a world-class and great city deficits and qualify and sustainability and social justice are all san francisco values those values drive our commitment to lead and act with resolve only climatic change in san francisco we've reduced green house gas emissions 23 percent below the 1990 levels and we're proud of this especially considering our population as grown by 15 percent and our economy has grown by 49 percent over the same time period and as we grow we are growing sustainability sustainable we are productive first hand
4:33 am
that solutions u solution to climatic change is a benefit all people of all income levels and in all neighborhoods still as a look around the room and this about drought and sea level rise and wildfires and conditions we've experienced in our own country's the truth is the impacts of climatic change is have san francisco real city, state, or national boundary lines that's why we need to address the problem that is bigger us but we're each be contributing to while city's take up only 2 percent of landmass wear responsible for 40 percent of land use and global emissions what happens in city's truly changes the world for the better
4:34 am
and worse as contributor to global climatic change the responsibility to address the problem also rests on our shoulder which is work i want to talk about the role that cities should play when it comes to climatic change in the environment and san francisco strategy to reduce our aggressive is represented by 3 simple numbers, zero, 50, and one hundred >> zero waste to our landfills 50 percent of trips by methods other than cars, 100 percent renewable energy, let me briefly share with you awhile zero, 50 and 100 percent are important first zero waste the production transportation and disposal of
4:35 am
our wastes comprise 42 percent of green house gas emissions in the united states recycling and compost mandatory in san francisco help cut this down by creating jobs and conserving resources zero waste is among the quickest and more cost fiscal strategies for governments to implements thanks to our residents and business partners san francisco is an 80 are percent waste diversion rate today next 50 percent transportation. in 201043 percent of san franciscans san francisco's cash footprint came if transportation related emissions our country must move people out of cars and go mass transit and bikes and pedestrian trips in san francisco we're investing everyday in bike share and
4:36 am
pedestrian network and our public transportation system and i'm pleased to report that san francisco reached the 50 percent at the end of counsel table just a few months ago years ahead of our schedule our challenge is now to main and grow that number finally 100 percent renewable energy just over half of our green house gas emissions come from energy use in our city's commercial and residential buildings the birth cash source we have first, we need to use less energy to power and heat our buildings and second we need to change the energy supply and source for renewable power how were we accomplishing this we're leading by example we launched the city solar incentive that helped to install over 3
4:37 am
thousand three hundred solar installations and created green jobs along the way this program focus on empowering low income and the members to benefit for the city's growing economy has been especially successful we recently launched >> renewable energy program that offers san francisco residents and businesses an electricity option cleaner then their existing energy and just as affordable san francisco is not the only city taking action too there are over 2000 actions teacher to reduce the building energy demand by over 46 cities and countries who ministers are representatives here today for example, to achieve the goals by 2020 the city of vancouver is on
4:38 am
the neighborhood e neighborhood scale development a neighborhood strategy focusing on hi density areas of that city to improve heating and cooling services for those buildings the city of cop hasten has the goal of the first cash neutral capital in the world by the year 2024 and begun transforming the district heating from cool and natural gas to sustainable bio mass 98 percent of cop happiness buildings are connected to the system when is one of the older of its kind the city of seoul in the represent of korea launched the project to reduce energy demands they offers low cost loans that cover 100 percent by increasing the krofrj from to 100 percent
4:39 am
they saw an increase in loan if $4 million in 2012 to $20 million in 2014 and finally i would be remiss if i didn't recognition our own nation's capital in about washington, d.c. they entered into a 20-year power purpose agreement that supplies roughly thirty percent of d.c. electricity for wind power the largest wind power of its kind and entered in by the american city and protected to save transpires that $45 million from over the next 20 years well, all of those examples illustrate judge industries are a crystal partner to advance clean energy solutions cities and states should be the focal point and leverage for the clean
4:40 am
ministers to advance goals and have actions thanks to the advance and the sciences and technology from the private sector partners the intersection between the decashtion of energy and the economies is closer but advancement still requires investment and that's why i want to thank our u.s. secretary monohe is and the department of energy for in their continued leadership of providing grants to the city attorney's office san francisco to scale up new clean energy technology in closing sniff you may know the charter of the united nations was actually signed into creation right here in san francisco in 1945 and a gathering of 50 nations that excluded over 8 hundred delegates rep 80 percent of the
4:41 am
are worlds population imagined was put to paper and action to make the world a more peaceful place for all citizens i believe that 9 climate agreement forgot in parking garage the work today is just as historic it will be recognized as a time when our global community united to create and healthier future for the planet and transforming our economies sustained so i commend our effort to tackles this challenge and honored to host you here in san francisco thank you very much >> (clapping.) >> thank you, ed lee. >> thank you, mayor it is wonderful your the amazing innovative things in san francisco and as well as here what the cities around the world to foster clean energies next my
4:42 am
honor to welcome tony early to the stage. >> now we're a very expensive region from our perspective tony is from detroit i can we have 3 governs in the room actually, i see govern gray davis hi. good afternoon how are you but that a 5 govern in tony it turns out that tovn i didn't was recruited inform run for govern of the michigan by jennifer and he instead tony decided to take a much easier job and moved to california to run pg&e now i'm sure that tony has his days did i make the right decision we never wonder an absolutely expensive leader
4:43 am
of an important company please help me welcome the mr. chairman and president affordable housing and ceo of the pg&e tony early. >> (clapping.) >> jim told my secret jim thank you very much and thanks for mayor ed lee hosting this in his city the mayor is a great advocate of investment in infrastructure to move the city and state ahead i want to thank secretary for eyes and ears to hold this very important meeting here in san francisco i want to start any remarks this afternoon by asking you to picture a scenario in a prosperous western state the climate is b of a weird decades the unafternoon rainfall has product a drought and
4:44 am
farmers are despite and everyone is prop i for a pacific rains unfortunately, they get their wish the heavens opened and failed to close from one state to the other and deserts are flooded 4 feet deep and washing away community in low lying regions the water reaches the tops of light poles and even the state capital is submerged on inauguration day the newly elected govern gets to the ceremony by row boat had the water resides thousand are dead and with an in every 8 homes ask ruined or carried out away that didn't sound evict a scrip for a bad hollywood movie all of that
4:45 am
happened in california over the winter of the 18 61 and 62 thanks to a river storm it produced 43 days of rain in a row, in fact, every number associated with that event staggers the imagine not only a loss of life 200 thousand cattle and 29 percent of economy was destroyed and built i the gold rush was driven into bankruptcy the land in denounced sacramento was raised 15 feet and the governor added an extra story to the mansion just in case what is truly mind-boggling 1 and 50 years later the lessons faded the supreme weather is not new
4:46 am
we've seen education in california and around the world by climate says those episodes with increasing if density it and the rising global temperatures make them less predictable to unlike our predecessors in 18 61 we have the guest of understanding why this they come again. >> how much is at stake thanks to the agreement struck in paris to pg&e power plan and the mo u we've taken steps to heed the warning of a century and a half ago i believe we can be successful over the next decades to create the solutions to stave off a global climate discharge in the government setting the right policies and individuals stepping up to do the right thing
4:47 am
but even if i'm relevant that won't change at fact warm is unavoidable we'll have to contend with those the melting of the parlor i'll say sheet in for your or san francisco bay area more than 200 square miles are vulnerable to the sea level rise with the more powerful i'd like to surges a storm lasting a few days can cost economics damages that's why at pg&e our focus on sustainability so the need to adopt to the climatic change to make your systems for resilient we're developing robust procedures and conducting a comprehensive assessment to vault storms and sea level rise as we see heat waves pg&e is among the utility that
4:48 am
joined the partnering for climatic resilience to share best practices we've also commented 200 and $50,000 in stakeholders fund to protect and restore wetlands around san francisco bay area and provide to join with other corporate members of the abusing council and voluntarily supporting that with public officials andville organizations we're now and then a new program to granted money to public-private partnerships to share the instantaneously for climate resilience and specifically one million dollars to support local planning throughout our service area to help community better understand plan four and respond to climate change risks some stisz have sophisticated plans underway others are getting starred or
4:49 am
face problems those grants we can learn from and with a focus on disadvantaged areas where the resources are lacking we see this as ass our commitment in support of communities we serve now for me that mission has then e taken on a personal resilience in the last 6 months i made two trips the first with governing california designation to the united nations climate change and part of geography to ann art can i cack with a faith in our ability to work collectively to solve this problem and i cack from ann articulate how crucial we fulfill that promise sooner than later a
4:50 am
prominent research has seen temperatures rise 12 degrees in his years of working and paris made clear the world is looking to california for some of those answers and gave me the privilege to tell our story that about that success while much remains to be done a clean energy future is moving faster they than we thought possible we made progress at pentagon this year we expect to deliver 33 percent from qualified renewables and when you include our large ohio plant under california laws don't fit the definition more than 45 percent is cash free light years ahead of most other places within the next 15 years we'll be approaching 70 percent as we
4:51 am
meet the target of 50 percent renewables and one key to the progress is bold target by the policymakers and the wisdom of utilities as partners a critical part of this is reaching barriers probation officer notify solutions the utilities have the unique ability to achieve and accelerate the use of low cash technologies and do so on the quick scale and demonstrated we can move renewable energy and drive down costs and keeping the grid reliable and customer bills down we can continue to do that if we work together with the right steps i think that 3 keys are crucial the first is continued investment in the grid the grid is the backbone of the economy
4:52 am
and makes more than life possible the smallest grid it the backbone of a clean energy economy with more distributed intelligence online privately owned solar and electrical vehicles and the like the grid is more acceptable we see the grid that services what the internet don't say platform a network that pulls the energy and integrate them to have more value for everyone the second key to the future adopting our empower right now the market forces are evolving faster the regulatory framework that largely is stuck in the year of thank god that stalls our progress for example, in the u.s. an ongoing debate in meter that is
4:53 am
an attempt to put band-aids on a antiquated process we need to make a changes and indeed examples regulatory environment slows down not just limited to the energy spear for those of you who flew into san francisco you might have noticed the span on the bay bridge the original part of that bridge is the part that is still standing and at the time that was built had the longtime suspected radios radio that is ahead of the grand jury designed is pencils and slide rules and built with more pleasantly labor than modern projects and took over 3 years to build the new span that is half as along with
4:54 am
the engineering software and technologies and the crucial pieces are being reworked as we talk about the need for the infrastructure i'll life you to decide where this fraction can meet the climatic change and the third key comes from the spirit and letter of paris agreement to keep the focus on recuse carbon rather than one particular mix of resources by doing that it gives the utilities and entrepreneurs the freedom to find the options and maximize innovation and provide consumers progress we know the issue of climatic change is no fixed address many of you come from far away's places with our history i'd like to offer a few points i hope you can take back
4:55 am
to our home first, as a tackle the numerous challenges of clean energy and solving the low cash look to the utility sector as a solution this is an industry that is used to doing big things an industry that was designed to serve the public interest part off dna we're good partners and the second as you look at those problems that need solving remember that we are more energy providers we can help with the resilience and clean transportation and we can help with public awareness and education utilities reach into every home additional business in your country we have relationship with millions in for the billions of customers and third look at the utilities in our areas as partners
4:56 am
just as individual country's can't eliminate cash neither can we our industry is hunger for partnerships you can help to facilitate and nurture we'll continue to make progress offender climatic change we have to take advantage the utilities and all of us to work together to accomplish things in a big way but to unleaf this we'll need the right policies the road to paris leads through this room and through all of you the decisions you make in the next few years shape the world for decades and essential to the ability of our country's to deliver on the promises it is your engagement in overseeing issues that assure that future is right and the stories like the california meg flood remain in the history books where they
4:57 am
belong thank you very much. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, very much. tony, say with great confidence not a business leader utility leader or company that has shown greater commitment to clean energy and pg&e we appreciate our leadership so, now we will have a high-level panel decision a sustainable urban systems so let me ask the panelists first welcome the executive director of international energy agency, mr. lien norris leader of petroleum and john first deputy mayor of china, and raphael gonzales the ceo of the north
4:58 am
america inc. thank you for being you are here today enjoy the discussion. >> so ladies and gentlemen, i wish you, please enjoy the american lunch here while we're going to do discuss a few important issues before going to the panel which is a very expressive panel as you can see i want to make a few remarks two racks one about the year 2015 and the second is a major report we are going to release in half an hour 2015 much has been perhaps the most incredible years in terms of the fight against climatic change not only because of paris
4:59 am
i'll talk about paris in a moment two other reasons why i believe 2015 could be a wonderful year for the fight against climatic change one 2015 ladies and gentlemen, zero two emissions did not increase like 2014 two years in a row we have seen zero emissions didn't increase even though global g dp increased more than 3 percent this has not been the case in the history we have seen only 3 times in the history when it didn't increase and all the 3 years is the financial crisis other than that for the first time two years in a right now 14
5:00 am
and 15 emissions remain the same good news now the year 2015 more than 90 percent of historical capacity the energy were renewable empowers and solar followed by other not the case 90 percent is impressive driven by china, u.s., europe and india and all other countries this is the second excellent news for 2015 and third was, of course, the power agreement i see the years in paris and he can assure you that paris the beautiful paris became much more beautiful after december 2015 i can assure i have many french
5:01 am
they'll definitely agree with me and in paris in addition to the historical agreement there are two other important elements that needs to be underlined number one our agreements were agreement attempts it was not only a top down target but a button up all the countries brought their targets their policies how their issues extremely important and second paris also brought new actresses into the picture in addition to governments we have now the businesses and act dam and others part of game and other actor is local governments the cities therefore the paris is not only
5:02 am
the amendment of all the countries of the world by the moeshltd were extremely important and in my view down to earth now great paris this to our panel we are going to do present or publish a major report in a hour of time two things i want to tell you about this this report focuses on a the progress in technologies we have a tasht in paris below two degrees and it is important to see how we are doing in different green energy technologies i'm not going to details you'll not lose your appetite we're not doing well there is some move a process but there are any areas we say are
5:03 am
significantly lagging in our report highlights where we are progressing better than expectations with a target established in paris the second area the report focuses on the cities as already mentions about the 70 percent of the emissions come from the city 85 percent - so if you want to solve this problem we have to solve the problem in the cities and the cities in our report they're two areas extremely important one the building be sector from the installation of the building to the for example, the cooling requirements which or go to psychopath in the next year's to come and what kind of cooling units we're going to use the
5:04 am
standard is extremely important for fighting against climatic change the other area we look at the transportation we look into how we can see even a bigger move in terms of the electrical vehicles which one million cars another good news but much for electrical cars and what are the favorable conditions but also the underlined the public transportation how to subsidize public transportation and the rest of the moves in the city we see in the beautiful city of san francisco but ladies and gentlemen, the main issue is the emerging countries cities which number of buildings built in the city and the buildings is 75
5:05 am
hundred years of time we should look into the future in the buildings which are not efficient so those are the issues that we deal with in our report maine the buildings and the transportation issue so we have now an clean out panel here one minister from the government and the mayor from the e merging country and the company which is dealing with energies i will move to the panel and perhaps start to ask the gentleman the minister of norway mr. minister your country is the highest share of electrical cars in the world into the total car fleet in our country how do you see is measures put forward and what is
5:06 am
it in the future so far as 20 percent if not share of cars in norway are electrical cars which compress the gloeshld average of unfortunately zero want one percent so how do you do that. >> mr. minister. >> thank you, dr. for your kind words and a moment to look at in a moment in time negative impact 2012 the paramount decided the goal to have 50 thousand electrical vehicles and that goal was already xhoetsd last year and today 70 thousand fewer electrical vehicles and hybrids if we have hybrids bylaw but basically most of benefits were put in place already in
5:07 am
2002 and 3 and the car didn't take off until 2000 but not before 2011 and so what are the reasons i think the obvious reasons for things to happen in 2011 was the fact that there were cars on marketshat were really cars that could meet the needs of families in a safe manner you have the problem we're starting to address in a proper way to say a greater range in norway we have a power system like 8 percent renewable sources nobody in norway we're able to say okay. your changing our diesel car with pure
5:08 am
renewables, of course, the tax and obviously of great importance a high new car sales tax for cars and however no new car sales tax for electrical vehicles of course, the same goes for petro and hardly any tax think renewable energy on the policy on the basis there is free parking in cities free ferry rides, access to bus lanes and from the government does we have good strong efforts into building capacity we targeted isn't urban where most people live establishing with the transportation for everybody
5:09 am
and now we're actually connecting the major cities in norway and this has led to this norway with 4 million people the second and the third largest market bean by the u.s. and china which has more people than norway as you can imagine and a fiscal benefit the in fact, that is when it comes to fueling meets the connection from petro fueled cars which will forever have high taxation and a competition in the decades ahead but if i might add one thing
5:10 am
before i leave the word back to you why do a tremors effort in reducing local pollutions reducing and co-2 emissions they come up justice department just as much space on the roads to have the basic strategy for ongoing electrical vehicles instead of building public transportation system could be a wrong solution. >> thank you very much mr. minister for highlighting the critical role of public transport even though the cars are moving fast in terms of populating the global fleet and mr. minister said if you have to have electrical cars certain share of your car fleet we need
5:11 am
policies and also some regulatory measures and very important as i mentioned mr. minister that in order to have an amount of benefits electricity fitting the car must be also clean otherwise the benefits may not be so obvious so i just mentioned that the statistics are important for climatic change but the e engineering countries are important so we're very lucky the first deputy mayor of in china under jack and you mr. mayor have an excellent experience in our city of the pushing this smart upper public transportation and sustainable energy
5:12 am
can you tell us how you realized what steps you took and whether or not the story you have in your city can be a model for other cities in china. >> thank you sorry don't speak good english so i need a translator.
5:13 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> i want to thank the california the governor of office for inviting us to attend this meeting the president of the china has made a commitment via the unclimatic change in paris the reduction of cash emissions in china and now the whole country is taking action i'm very glad our city is very glad to endorse the mou and now under the leadership of the central government we are connecting with california we find the plan of actions with california and now we are promoting our
5:14 am
policies closely. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> this is a city in east of china been shanghai the american female writers who is also the the nobel prize in litter she grew up in china for 18 years and described as her hometown in china. >> (speaking foreign language.)
5:15 am
>> this morning i heard the speech by the government of california gosh and i agree with him very much we need to transfer our commitment to actions. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so our apart from the separate transportation we have conducted many efforts for the reduction of cash emission in the city and our efforts can be concluded from 5 perspectives. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> first, we set up the goal of achieving cash peak.
5:16 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> at cop 21 pointed out that cashier emissions will peak in around 2030. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> based on a scientific analysis and calculations it is one of the earlier city to achieving 10 years earlier than the national goal and average. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> preceding in the current situation we're confident it we
5:17 am
have the ability to realize the goal. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> second we need the best tools for the contractions how much the cashier emissions like drinking water we have to take sip one by one to know how much water we can drink.
5:18 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> by using clot commuting i owe the technologies we segregate land use, environment and sources and industries and safety reduction and cashier emissions by doing so we can hanger and reexamine and check the cash emissions reduction in the city. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> now we conducted realtime online monitoring over 48 key emissions companies in the city the total emissions is 80 percent of the cities total.
5:19 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> during the past 5 years over three hundred chemical plans were shut down. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> nearly 11 towns of cashier emissions is reduced. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> third, i think about apart from the activities of the business sector one important actress in the reduction of cash emission is people's livelihood. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so the motorer mentioned
5:20 am
buildings and transportation are very important factors in the reduction of cashier emissions. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so we've taken 9 major actions to reduce the cash emissions in the city. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> is action include optimizing the industry and encouraging the low cashier industries for production developing cash buildings and low cash incurs and low cash
5:21 am
transportation for low cash development. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so, now the low cash development and the awareness have come to - has been raised amongst the people. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> fourth we highlight the highlight of our efforts zero cash demonstration projects in the city. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> we select city and two islands in our city as pilots.
5:22 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> last i think that the most for the international cooperation like the meetings during the two days a very good opportunity to learn from other countries and regions. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> in october of this year we were holding international infection of low cashiers and products the interact welcomes
5:23 am
companies and expert from all over the world to join us i'd like to extend our opportunity and hope you have a look in the country city and our low development. >> thank you, mr. mayor for this excellent presentation of achievements of our city is it so interesting what you said your city's image as 2020 before the aggregate promise emissions this is one of the in my view most important outcomes coming from paris the architect of paris agreement and she was agreeing with me the peak in 2020 both the underlying agreement is critical to reach our goal now the other thick that is
5:24 am
critical to reach you are goals within the energies in greece in the urban systems and the entering green power is one we're fortunate to have other green power with gonzales is with us and can you tell us about our sclernz how do you merge the smart renewable and just the generation of models. >> okay. good afternoon and thank you for inviting me to participate first, let me explain the activity of urban power that is part of a viability and it is investing in renewables and investing in conventional duration that works and we we have activities in
5:25 am
other places as well let's start to explain the our vision and strategy for how we are implementing these in the notifies in the renewables so our region is open power to solve the main challenges of the world open power needs to supply energy to the people they don't have energy supplied. >> open power means a tool to be open to innovation and new technologies and to use this system technologies as well as on a different way in a way we have here in nevada an assembled combination of technology, solar tv and solar concentrated open
5:26 am
power needs to find and open ways to manage the energy on a different way as well in relation to the demand and generation and to be open as well to paris so we can't build this by ourselves we need to have paris in this sense so how we approach what is the business model ♪ smart cities we're taken so our vision we are open to the scope and to the local initiatives so it is different for example, in mellone we have builds for the first time in the world the first smart city refell fill a
5:27 am
city designed for one hundred thousand people supply renewable energy solar and we see the light systems as well as market the light systems and smart mobility and smart challenges and the system is implement to manage all this on the right way this is an assembly all assembles are depends on the local scope and the local needs we have all this examples in mellone another smart city by started almost 7 years ago so a combination of generation of solar as well and integrate these in a smart way and incorporate these on a different
5:28 am
way and obtaining at the same time efficiency in the management of the grid the salesforce are important and in this instance sustainable we're doing the specific initiatives with sharing cars for example, and bus car in chillingly and electrical taxis in above the blue and windy sea to we're contributing utility on those different specific requirements and it is important ♪ sense the corporation with the place the local authority and government is very supportive on this sense we can't do this type of initiatives without the support and the engagement of the local activities the most -
5:29 am
the locals say the local communities and consumers and so much it is necessary to solve with them this project so make it as sustainable and reliable and affordable thank you very much so ladies and gentlemen, we're at the end of this two things if i may undermine we understood the cities are extremely critical if we were to address our climate challenge number one and number 2 local governments we need to be bring a critical roll in terms of which measures then and how when it comes to buildings and when it comes to the transportation and when it comes to the electricity
5:30 am
generation we've seen the minister show up how hi country increases cars and from the mayor how successful in emerging countries and how successful and seen from the ceo they agree and visit us and still make money if those 3 can do we can all do as well thank you very much and thank you >> (clapping.) >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you, sir and thank you panel it is very, very go back this is the conclusion of lunch program so at this point we'll be splilt into two groups if you're among the ministers you'll go to the room next door in the colonial room and the c e
5:31 am
m along the tower thank you on behalf of the bay area council it is a pleasure to have you here in san francisco and the bay area hope you enjoy the lunch thank you very >> hi, i'm corn field and welcome to doing building san francisco, we are doing a special series, called stay safe, how you can stay in your home safely and comfortable, and we know that an earthquake
5:32 am
is coming and there are things that you can do to reduce the effects of the earthquake on your home. let's take a look at that. >> here at the spur urban center on mission street in san francisco talking about staying in your home after an earthquake. i have guests today, pat buscavich and his dog, harvey and david, and both structural engineers and we want to talk about things that you might do before an earthquake to your home to make it more likely that your home will be ha bitable after an earthquake, what should we do? both structural and maybe even important non-structural things. >> you hear about how to prepare an earthquake kit and brace your book shelves and water tank and that is important. what you have to be careful is make sure that you are not going the easy things to make yourself feel better. if you have a bad structure, a bad building, then you need to be looking at that and
5:33 am
everything that you do to keep your collectables in place is small and compared. if you have taken care of your structure, then there is a lot of stuff that you can do in your house that is non-structural and your chimney and water tank. >> let's talk about what the structural things might be. >> and he is exactly right. you don't want to make the deck chairs safe on the titanic, it is going down, you are going down, you have to make sure that your house is safe. there are basic things that you need to do including bracing the water heater, not just because of fire hazard but because of the water source and the damage, but basic things are installing anchor bolts, and adding plywood and strapping your beams to column and posts to footings and foundations are really easy things to do and most contractors can do the building department is set up to approve this work, and these are things that every home owner should do, and it is a little harder because you have to get a building permit and hire a contractor. but you want to be able to
5:34 am
after a big earthquake to climb in bed that night and pull the covers up and say i don't have to worry about going to a government shelter. >> that is the main focus that it is great to have an earthquake kit to be able to bug out for 72 hours. here is a better idea, stay in your own home and in order to do that you have to be make sure that your structure is okay. if you have a house, the easy things to do with the wood construction is feasible. if you have a renter or you live in a concrete building, you need to talk to the building own , and make sure they have done their due diligence and find out what the deficiencies are. >> when i have looked at damaged buildings,vy seen that a little bit of investment in time and money and structural work provides great dividends. >> especially if it is the wood frame, typical house that you can do the things that i was talking about, the anchor and the plywood in the first garage area, you know if you
5:35 am
refinanced in the last three years, get some of that savings and it is a really good investment. and the other thing that i try to tell people, earthquake insurance is not the solution to the shelter in place, if there is a big earthquake and your building is damaged, you are not in your house, you may be somewhere else, if you work in the city, it is going to be really hard to commute from sonoma, you want to do what is necessary so that your house is retrofitted and a couple of years of earthquake premium could get you to a level that you could be in the house after a significant earthquake and it may have damage and there is still a shelter in place where you are at home and you are not worried for the government taking care of you and you are living in a place where you can go to work and you want to have your wood frame house is really easy to get to that level. on top of the wood frame house, i mean every wood frame house in the west half of the city have a water tank and the water tank fall over because they are gas fired and start fires. and that is something that you
5:36 am
could do for yourself, and for your neighbors and for the whole city is make sure that your water tank is braced. >> if you look at the studies that are predicting on fires, we are going to have a lot of fires and for every water tank that is braced there is a potential of one less fire that the fire department is going to have to fight and we don't want to have any more fires than we need to. so bracing the water heater is the first thing that you want to do. >> and so easy, and you go on-line and you google, earthquake, water and heater and you google the sites where you can find the details and you can put them out there on the hardware store and you can hire a small contract tore do that for you. that is a couple of hundred bucks, the best investment. if you are in other types of building it is complicated. if you are in a high-rise building you just can't anchor your building down because there are no anchor bolts, but at that point, the tenant should be asking questions of the owner's and the managers about earthquake preparedness >> and don't take the easy
5:37 am
answer, oh, our building is safe it was designed to code. that is not the right answer, ask the tough questions and see if you can get a report that has been given to you. >> what is the right question? will i be able to stay in my home after the expected earthquake? is that a good question to ask? >> yeah, you may be more specific if you talk to the owner, if it is not a recent building, if it is ten or 20 years old see if they had an inspection done and there you will have a written before that will tell you all about the structure. >> thanks, pat. >> thanks, harvey. and thanks david for joining us and thank you for joining us on >> i'm your host of "culturewire," and today, here
5:38 am
at electric works in san francisco. nice to see you today. thanks for inviting us in and showing us your amazing facility today. >> my pleasure. >> how long has electric works been around? >> electric works has been in san francisco since the beginning of 2007. we moved here from brisbane from our old innovation. we do printmaking, gallery shows, and we have a fabulous retail store where there are lots of fun things to find. >> we will look at all of that as we walk around. it is incredible to me how many different things you do. how is it you identify that san francisco was in need of all these different services? >> it came from stepping out of graduate school in 1972. i wrote a little thing about how this is an idea, how our world should work. it should have printmaking, archiving, a gallery. it should have a retail store.
5:39 am
in 1972, i wanted to have art sales, point-of-sale at the grocery store. >> so you go through the manifesto. with the bay area should have. you are making art incredibly accessible in so many different ways, so that is a good segue. let's take a walk around the facilities. here we are in your gallery space. can you tell me about the current show? >> the current show is jeff chadsey. he is working on mylar velum, a smooth, beautiful drawing surface. i do not know anyone that draws as well as he does. it is perfect, following the contours and making the shape of the body. >> your gallery represents artists from all over, not just the bay area, an artist that
5:40 am
work in a lot of different media. how to use some of what you look for in artists you represent? >> it is dependent on people are confident with their materials. that is a really important thing. there is enough stuff in the world already. >> you also have in his current show an artist who makes sculpture out of some really interesting types of materials. let's go over and take a look at that. here we are in a smaller space. project gallery. >> artists used the parameters of this space to find relationships between the work that is not out in the big gallery. >> i noticed a lot of artists doing really site-specific work. >> this is a pile of balloons, something that is so familiar, like a child's balloon. in this proportion, suddenly, it becomes something out of a dream.
5:41 am
>> or a nightmare. >> may be a nightmare. >> this one over here is even harder to figure out what the initial material is. >> this is made out of puffy paint. often, kids use it to decorate their clothes. she has made all these lines of paint. >> for the pieces we are looking at, is there a core of foam or something in the middle of these pieces that she built on top of? >> i'm not telling. >> ah, a secret. >> this silver is aluminum foil, crumbled of aluminum foil. her aesthetic is very much that quiet, japanese spatial thing that i really admire. their attention to the materiality of the things of the world. >> this is a nice juxtaposition you have going on right now. you have a more established
5:42 am
artists alongside and emerging artists. is that something important to you as well? >> very important in this space, to have artists who really have not shown much. now let's look at other aspects of electric works operation. let's go to the bookstore. >> ok. >> in all seriousness, here we are in your store. this is the first space you encounter when you come in off the street. it has evolved since you open here into the most amazingly curious selection of things. >> this was the project for the berkeley art museum. it was -- this is from william wiley's retrospective, when he got up onstage to sing a song, 270 people put on the cat. >> it is not just a bookstore. it is a store. can you talk us through some of your favorites? >> these are made in china, but
5:43 am
they are made out of cattails. >> these pieces of here, you have a whale head and various animals and their health over there, and they are jewelry. >> we do fund raisers for nonprofits, so we are doing a project for the magic theater, so there are some pretty funny cartoons. they are probably not for prime time. >> you sort of have a kind of holistic relationship where you might do merchandise in the store that promotes their work and practice, and also, prince for them. maybe we should go back and look at the print operation now. >> let's go. >> before we go into the print shop, i noticed some incredible items you have talked back here. what are we standing in front of? >> this is william wiley, only
5:44 am
one earth. this is a print edition. there are only eight total, and what we wanted to do was expand the idea of printmaking. this is really an art object. there we go. >> besides the punball machine, what do you produce in limited edition? >> there is the slot machine. if you win the super jackpot, you have saved the world. >> what about work? >> the right design, it was three volumes with lithographs in each volume. the cab of count dracula with 20 lithographs inside and lined with beaver fur. really special.
5:45 am
>> let's move on to the print shop. >> ok. the core of what we do is making things. this is an example. this is a print project that will be a fund-raiser for the contemporary music players. we decided to put it in the portfolio so you could either frame at or have it on your bookshelf. >> so nonprofits can come to you, not just visual are nonprofits, but just nonprofits can come to you, and you will produce prints for them to sell, and the profits, they can keep. >> the return on investment is usually four times to 10 times the amount of investment. this is for the bio reserve in mexico, and this is one of the artists we represent. >> you also make prints for the artists that you represent. over here are some large prints by a phenomenal artist. >> he writes these beautiful
5:46 am
things. anyone who has told you paradise is a book of rules is -- has only appeared through the windows. this is from all over coffee. we are contract printers for all kinds of organizations all across the country. >> thank you very much for showing us around today. i really appreciate you taking the time to let me get better acquainted with the operation and also to share with our "culturewire" team. >> all right. good afternoon, everyone it's a little bit warm we're going to get going supervisor cowen is wanting to play and celebrate with everybody my name is food and beverages i have the best
